3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2003 Deep amber with a healthy froth, which doesn't seem to last. Mostly rewarding mouthfeel, though there are watery notes. Rich, noticeable malts. Easy to drink. Decent hop bitterness. Malts definitely outweigh the hops. Some roasted caramel and toast. Lingering bitterness.

Orange-amber color. Very nice hop aroma. Smooth, some malt and some residual sweetness, quite good hop. Anyway ordinary, missing a kick.

This brew has a fruit juice aroma to it.It definitely has an aftertaste to it.This is definitely a brew that I won't be drinking any time soon.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew has a mild fruity aroma. When poured, it yielded a medium head of off white medium to large bubbles that left a good lacing as it receded. Its body was a medium amber color. It has a mild initial taste with a slight after taste. Some carbonation was evident in the taste. This brew was much smoother than I expected. It is a decent brew, but give me their Porter!

Nice foamy,golden color head that dissipated slowly.Golden in color.Sweet malt,hoppy aroma with a hint of what seems like some citrus maybe lemon.The flavor was lightly malty,with a strong hop presence,kind of bitter at first but mellows quickly as it passes the tongue.The sweetness that i smelled did show up in the flavor.Nice hopp after taste that lasts quite a while.It's a nice IPA but i feel there are better out there.The one thing this has going for it is that it is very drinkable in large quantities.

Holy hops Batman! While it may not be the hoppiest beer I've ever had, it ranks far up there. Oddly enough, there is a strong malt content to it as well. I'm not sure the two mesh very well. It's a pretty good IPA, but there's better.

a great hoppy taste, its aroma reminded me of a bass ale and therefore was not interesting. I also found tha aftertaste to be very dry.

By far the least enjoyable of the recent British batch I sampled. Kind of damp and muddied malt - well toasted bread soaked, for some unfathomable reason, in fruit juice til the pleasantness drips away. Fresh hops dance tanatalizingly around the edges, but can't completely redeem the beer.

Clear amber body with medium tan head. Aroma is toasted malt and light floral hoppy. Taste is light malty up front, finishing with decent earthy bitterness. Moderately watery palate.

An english style ipa, unfiltered & smooth. Definitely better then the mcewan's ipa. Ditto on the malty. Pretty good beer.
